Re: Why do people want weather stations
SPeaking as a pauper sailor, I got mine 'cos it was cheaper than a replacement for the knackered (and rusty!) anaeroid baroneter that Jissel had when I bought her.
At the price, I thought the Aldi job was worth a try & it's been accurate to +_ 1mb ever since and hasn't needed recalibration more often than it needs the batteries replacing - every year or so. For my needs, it's great - I needed the barometer, the other toys are a bonus.
Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.
